I read the Autosurf (Paid Daily Version 1.5) Setup manual carefully and found something that I don't really understand. I couldn't find the answer else where.
I hope someone in TG may have answer for them:
1. Upload all files to your server in the appropriate directory. You must upload all file in (ASCII mode) EXCEPT the images (img) folder, upload this in BINARY mode.
Questions: What if I choose "Auto" mode?
2. The CHMOD
CHMOD ALL ".php" files to 755
CHMOD the folders "banners" , "members" , "control" "style.css" to 777. CHMOD the /control/database_backup.sql file to 777 also.
Question: Is it really important to CHMOD files as instructed? What if I don't do that?
3. Use install_news.php to update your mysql database if you already running the script! Delete the file after you finish!
Question: What exactly is the function for?
4.Setup the cron job at around 12am server time using:
0 0 * * * GET http://www.your-site.com/cronjob.php
or if you get problems with the command above, try using:
0 0 * * * lynx --dump http://www.your-site.com/cronjob.php
0 0 * * * /usr/bin/curl --silent http://www.your-site.com/cronjob.php
Question: How to do the above?? Copy the whole address?
5.Setup a backup cronjob if you desire around 1 hr later than the first (morning server time would be the best time to run your cronjob).
Question: How to set this? Does this mean a backup will be automatically done?
If any of you know the answer please advise. Thank you everyone!
